So how does that figure into Although the Puerto Ricans the equation? have been given the possibil- The question and ambiguity brought up by those that oppose statehood is that, yes, the statehood issue won the majority with 809,000 votes but if the votes for the remodified Estado Libre Associado category along with the voters who cast a blank ballot (approx. 472,000 votes) considered a protest vote, those two votes result in 913,000 a far bigger majority, which is being touted as a No vote for statehood. The situation is complex to say the least. Speaking on a recent radio program Tomás Cabassa, a Latino leader who has family and business ties on the island, is concerned because the issue is not clear on what the future of Puerto Rico will be. Cabassa stated: It may end up in the hands of the President of the United States, who has stated he will push for a binding plebiscite on the status of Puerto Rico if a clear cut majority is not reached. That seems to be one of the issues with all of the preceding plebiscites they were never a binding vote for the US Congress to consider. So until the Congress of the United States gets involved in an official binding plebiscite, the status of Puerto Rico may well be the political football used in island politics to control the power and destiny of Puerto Rico. Fear tactics have been played by all sides on the issue. The question of Puerto Rico losing its culture and traditions if it becomes a state has been used to vote No on statehood. The fear of having the US Congress make a life-changing decision on the Puerto Rican status with no regard as to the wishes of the people has also been heard throughout the island. One thing is clear, that the vote numerically indicates a change in status but it is far from certain as which future Puerto Ricans want for themselves. On a side note, there are more Puerto Ricans living on mainland USA than live on the island itself. The mainland Puerto Ricans are also divided as to who should have a voice in the island s future. Some say that they are 100 percent boriqua and want to be involved in the island politics but don t want to move there. Others say that it should be up to the Puerto Rican people that actually live on the island to decide. First generation Puerto Ricans, transplanted to the U.S. because their families came to US-America for a better life, feel tore between the issues.

Most realize that the citizenship given to the natives of Puerto Rican was done by an Act of Congress, which another act could take away, so they prefer statehood. Others that still travel to Puerto Rico frequently fear the island would lose its identity with an English-only government. Fact is no one knows what is in store for Puerto Rico. It may be another Latino issue for the President and US Congress to solve this is the Puerto Rican conundrum.

3 Página 2 Congreso de EEUU tiene 29 latinos, tres en Senado Por LUIS ALONSO LUGO WASHINGTON, DC, 7 de noviembre del 2012 (AP) 7 de noviembre del 2012: Los hispanos alcanzaron el martes una representación sin precedentes en el Congreso de Estados Unidos al elevar a tres la cantidad de senadores y a 26 la de representantes. El republicano Ted Cruz hizo historia al convertirse en el primer latino en representar a Texas en el Senado, donde se reunirá con otros dos cubanoestadounidenses: su colega de partido Marco Rubio y el demócrata Bob Menéndez, quien obtuvo su primera reelección. El demócrata Richard Carmona, ex director nacional de Salud Pública durante el mandato de George W. Bush, fracasó en su intento por convertirse en el cuarto senador hispano al caer tras una reñida competencia en Arizona frente al representante republicano Jeff Flake, que reemplazará al también republicano Jon Kyl. En la misma jornada, 26 legisladores hispanos han asegurado hasta el momento su escaño en la cámara de representantes, superando la presencia actual de 24. A primera hora del miércoles aún no se conocía si el representante Joe Baca lograría reelegirse ni si el doctor Raúl Ruiz ambos demócratas de California lograría arrebatar el escaño a la republicana Mary Bono Mack. El grupo de elegidos por primera vez está conformado por los demócratas Joaquín Castro legislador estatal y el abogado Filemón Vela (ambos por Texas), el senador estatal Juan Vargas y el concejal de Los Angeles Tony Cárdenas (ambos por California), y la ex comisionada del condado Bernalillo, Michelle Luján Grisham, en Nuevo México. Joe García en Florida y Pete Gallego en Texas llegaron por primera vez a la cámara baja con victorias sobre republicanos. Los demócratas que lograron la reelección el martes son Lucille Roybal-Allard, Grace Flores Napolitano, Xavier Becerra, Loretta y Linda Sánchez (California), Raúl Grijalva y Ed Pastor (ambos por Arizona), Luis Gutiérrez (Illinois), Albio Sires en Nueva Jersey, Ben Ray Luján en Nuevo México, Rubén Hinojosa y Henry Cuéllar (ambos en Texas), y los neoyorquinos Nydia Velásquez y José Serrano. Los republicanos reelegidos hasta el momento son Raúl Labrador (Idaho), Bill Flores (Texas), Jaime Herrera Beutler (Washington), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen y Mario Díaz- Balart (ambos por Florida). Un total de 49 candidatos latinos, 32 demócratas, 16 republicanos y uno sin afiliación declarada tal como permite una ley recién aprobada en California aspiraban a escaños en la cámara baja. California podría duplicar la cantidad de latinos de su delegación, de seis a 11. La Asociación Nacional de Funcionarios Latinos Designados y Electos, con sede en Washington, esperaba que al menos 27 triunfaran, incluyendo 22 en funciones o hispanos que buscan remplazar a otros latinos. Abogado de 41 años, Cruz se impuso ante el ex representante estatal demócrata Paul Sadler para ocupar el escaño que la republicana Kay Bailey Hutchison dejó vacante La Prensa November 16, 2012 al jubilarse. Las encuestas le concedían a Cruz apenas 2% de apoyo cuando iniciaron las primarias de su partido. Su padre nació en Cuba y luchó junto a Fidel Castro antes de que su gobierno se volviera comunista, para luego huir a Texas sin hablar inglés y con 100 dólares escondidos en su ropa interior. Cruz nació en Canadá mientras sus padres trabajaban en campos petroleros, pero se crió en Houston y tiene una oratoria populista que pulió al convertirse en campeón de debates en la Universidad de Princeton y cuando cursaba derecho en Harvard. Joaquín Castro, un mexicano-americano de segunda generación oriundo de San Antonio y egresado de Harvard, remplazará a Charlie González, quien ejerció la presidencia del comité de legisladores hispanos. Castro es hermano gemelo del alcalde de San Antonio, Julián Castro, quien fue el orador principal de la convención demócrata. Tanto Castro como Vela lanzaron sus candidaturas en distritos electorales recién creados. En Florida, el demócrata Joe García se impuso al republicano y también cubano-estadounidense David Rivera, a quien la Comisión de Etica de la Florida halló una causa probable para abrir una investigación el mes pasado por presuntamente cometer 11 violaciones a leyes que regulan la ética cuando era legislador estatal.

El Instituto de Política Migratoria, con sede en Washington, dijo que por lo menos 1,76 millones de personas podrían beneficiarse del programa.

Immigrant youth, the DREAMers, waged a fearless campaign to force the DREAM Act onto the political agenda and to convince the President to offer them protection from deportation a move that 58 percent of Latino voters said made them more enthusiastic about voting for President Barack Obama, who won the Latino vote by a record breaking 75% / 23% margin among Latinos according to a new poll by Latino Decisions, after seeing lukewarm enthusiasm earlier this year. Mitt Romney s vow to veto the DREAM Act early in his Republican primaries defined him and the Republican Party in the eyes of Latino voters and his implied vow to end the DREAMer Deferred Action program sealed the deal. With the program at risk, Latinos casted their ballots in favor of candidates who support pro-immigrant legislation. padres e hicimos nuestra parte, haga usted la suya, los manifestantes permanecieron cerca de una hora en la acera.

We will also remind Republicans that they stood against DREAMers and our families and lost big. DREAMers convinced the President to protect us from deportation and we won t rest until we win permanent policy changes in US Congress that would create a roadmap to citizenship for our families and communities, said Evelyn Rivera, member of the National Coordinating Committee of United We Dream Network. The unprecedented impact of DREAMers and the Latino vote this year was apparent in states like Colorado, Nevada, Ohio, and Florida, where their support made the crucial difference in President Obama s reelection. United We Dream will not allow the retrogression of policies, which DREAMers won, that help our communities. Now more than ever, we are unified and know we have the backing of the nation s fastest growing population of voters: Latinos. We are determined to protect Deferred Action and to continue engaging our communities. And it is clear that Latino voters will increasingly play a critical role in upcoming elections, said Cristina Jiménez, Managing Director of United We Dream Network. United We Dream local affiliates and leaders took a direct role in getting out the vote, working as part of a collective educational effort throughout the country to reach out to their networks, Latino Voters, and the broader immigrant community, to inform them of their civic engagement duties.

5 Página 4 Call to end Secretary of State s Senseless Policy and ICE Harassment of Parents Johnson Should Stop Playing Politics with Young People s Lives; ICE Should Follow its Own Rules LANSING, Nov. 9, 2012: Today, Young immigrants and their supporters gathered on the steps of the State Capital to call on Secretary of State Ruth Johnson and Governor Rick Snyder to grant drivers licenses to students with work permits authorized under President Barack Obama s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Many students feel that their work permits are virtually useless without the ability to drive to school or to look for work. There was also a call for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to follow its own guidelines and stop harassing families moving children to or from school. Secretary of State Johnson needs to stop playing politics with students lives, said rally organizer Wendy Medrano of Western Michigan University. For her, it s just a political game. But for the students who have these work permits, it s a question of whether they can support their families and pay tuition. Immigration reform advocates called for a meeting with Governor Snyder and Secretary of State Johnson to resolve the contradiction of denying legal residents the right to drive while they have been granted deferred action and work authorization by the federal government. They also addressed another more blatant form of harassment. ICE Agents, in direct violation of the agency s own rules, have been stopping parents trying to get their children to or from school. Our community is under siege, said Detroit resident and community organizer Francisco Flores. Families La Prensa Michigan November 16, 2012 should feel safe to drop their children off in the morning, not wondering if that will be the last time they see their kids. ICE needs to follow its own rules, and treat us with basic human dignity.

6 LA PRENSA SALES: COLUMBUS TOLEDO DETROIT LORAIN Noviembre 16, 2012 La Prensa Ohio Page 5 Ohio exit poll: Auto bailout propels Obama By JOHN SEEWER, Associated Press COLUMBUS, Nov. 7, 2012 (AP): President Barack Obama s decision to bail out the auto industry and revitalize two of Ohio s biggest employers drove him to victory in the crucial swing state of Ohio Tuesday. Obama s solid backing from blue collar workers and unions were enough to help overcome less backing from independent voters, according to preliminary exit poll results for The Associated Press and television networks. Most of Ohio s voters were in favor of coming to the aid of General Motors and Chrysler and three-fourths threw their support behind the president. Voters in union households and Ohioans who had not gone beyond high school were solidly behind Obama. Those who continued their education beyond high school split their vote evenly between Republican Mitt Romney and the president. Obama won Ohio despite less support from independent voters who swung toward Romney. His popularity also dipped slightly among white working-class voters and those nearing retirement age from four years ago, but it was not enough to cost him. Young voters in Ohio delivered again for the president, backing him by close to a 2-to-1 margin. It was similar to what happened four years ago. Democrats had been worried that the state s young people might not turn out as strongly this time and put a bigger effort into targeting college students. Obama visited nearly all of Ohio s biggest universities this fall. His campaign registered thousands of students and drove them to early voting sites in charter buses and vans. But they showed up in comparable numbers. Union voters who normally make up a bigger chunk of the presidential electorate in Ohio than in other swing states favored Obama by a three-out-of-five margin. Ohio has been hit hard by job losses, but its unemployment rate is better than the national average, boosted by a rebounding auto industry and growth in manufacturing. Most Ohio voters said the economy was the top issue in this year s election, but they were evenly split when it comes to whether Obama or Romney would better handle the economy. Ohioans were no more optimistic about the economy than the rest of the nation despite its better jobless numbers, according to the exit poll results. But the state s voters were slightly more likely to blame former President George W. Bush than Obama for the economic troubles, mirroring the mood of the nation s voters. Calvin Sutton, a retiree from the Columbus suburb of Westerville, said Obama deserves credit for holding the nation together during a tough time. I haven t witnessed a depression, but I ve witnessed many downturns in my 74 years. And I think that was the worst economic time that I have ever remembered, he said. Voters said rising prices and unemployment were the biggest economic problems facing them. I still think it s stagnant. I think it hurts household values, it hurts education, it hurts everybody more when you have people not working, said Christine McCauley, 46, a stay-athome mom from Berea, a Cleveland suburb. She s a Democrat but went with Romney. About a quarter of the state s voters thought the nation s economy was getting better, with Obama scoring high among them. Slightly more thought it was getting worse off, and they were voting heavily for Romney. Worries about the economy were even worse in 2008 when Obama rode that discontent to the White House. This time, voters who said their own family s finances were better or had not changed in the past four years favored the president. Both campaigns made a November 8, 2012 Mr. Rico Neller, Editor LaPrensa P.O.

This 1.85 mill levy, which will not be collected until 2014, will allow Lucas County Children Services to continue to investigate reports of, and protect children from, the tragedy of abuse and neglect.

Just two weeks ago, LCCS learned that the Council on Accreditation reaccredited LCCS for the February 2013 through February 2017 period. Had Issue 25 failed, it would have been difficult for the agency to maintain the accessible, appropriate, culturally responsive, evidence based, and outcome oriented services to children and families that COA recognized us for providing. LCCS is among only 22 public child protection agencies in Ohio and 45 nationwide to maintain this designation. On behalf of LCCS 360 employees, and the hundreds of children and families they serve all year long, I thank Lucas County residents for protecting our community s most vulnerable citizens by approving Issue 25. Please join us in remaining vigilant by reporting suspected abuse or neglect for (CARE).

But seven out of 10 Ohio voters say they had their minds made up before the final two months of the campaign and before the flood of ads and candidate visits. Only a handful waited until the final days to decide. And it s probably no surprise that a majority of voters in Ohio said each candidate attacked the other unfairly after being swamped with television and radio ads and mailers. Slightly more people said Romney attacked Obama unfairly. Associated Press writers Tom Sheeran in Berea and Ann Sanner in Columbus contributed to this report.

14 November/noviembre 16, 2012 La Prensa Página 11 Puerto Rico vote endorses statehood with asterisk (Continued from Page 2) who is also a Republican, welcomed the results and said he was hopeful that Congress would take up the cause. But Fortuno won t be around to lead the fight: Voters turned him out of office after one term, and gave the governorship to Alejandro García Padilla of the Popular Democratic Party, which wants Puerto Rico to remain a semi-autonomous U.S. commonwealth. García has pledged to hold a constitutional assembly in 2014 to address the island s status, followed by another referendum with support from US Congress. Margarita Nolasco, the vice president of the Puerto Rican Senate from the prostatehood party, said she feared the commonwealth forces would seek to undermine the plebiscite. At the beginning of the last century, statehood appeared to be an impossible dream, Nolasco said. After a century of battles and electoral defeats, statehood just became the political force of majority that Puerto Ricans prefer. Besides pointing to the defeat of the governor, albeit by a margin of less than 1 percent, skeptics point to other signs that statehood is not ascendant in Puerto Rico. Luis Delgado Rodríguez, who leads a group that supports sovereign free association, noted all the voters who left the second question blank, raising questions about their preference. He said those voters, coupled with those who support independence and sovereign free association, add up to more than those who favored statehood. This represents an overwhelming majority against statehood, he said. The results are also murky because everyone could vote in the second round no matter how they marked the first question and the choice of sovereign free association is not the same as the current status. So people could have voted for both no change in the first round and any of the choices in the second. Nearly 65,000 left the first question blank. With that kind of message, US Congress is not going to do anything, and neither is President Obama, Rivera said. Puerto Rico has been a territory for 114 years and its people have been U.S. citizens since Residents of the island cannot vote in the U.S. presidential election, have no representation in the Senate and only limited representation in the House of Representatives. It s a situation that frustrates many, as does the longsimmering political uncertainty. Independence was once the dominant political movement on the island but no longer: Only 6 percent of voters opted to sever ties from the U.S., a prospect that scared voters like 31-year-old José Ramos. I prefer that the United States helps us, because to stand on our own two feet, no, said the father of three. I don t want this to become a republic. That scares me.

This issue has been around far too long, Boehner said in an interview with ABC News World News. A comprehensive approach is long overdue, and I m confident that the president, myself, others can find the common ground to take care of this issue once and for all. A survey of Latino voters by the firm Latino Decisions found that Latinos gave Obama his winning margin in Colorado, Florida and Nevada, swing states where they turned out in unusually high numbers. Even before the races were called, some Republicans took to the airwaves and social media calling for the party to back off its hard-line stance and embrace certain immigration reforms. It s unclear whether the results would change the party s opposition to legalizing the status of some undocumented immigrants. In a conversation with the Des Moines Register last month, Obama predicted that Republican opposition could crumble after Latinos delivered the White House to him. The conversation was initially off the record but later published with the president s consent. And since this is off the record, I will just be very blunt, Obama said. Should I win a second term, a big reason I will win a second term is because the Republican nominee and the Republican Party have so alienated the fastest-growing demographic group in the (Continued on Page 12)
15 Página 12 Por E. EDUARDO CASTILLO MEXICO, 7 de noviembre del 2012 (AP): Una coincidencia comienza a mostrarse en Latinoamérica tras la reelección de Barack Obama como presidente de Estados Unidos: no se espera ningún cambio dramático en la relación del gobierno estadounidense hacia la región, aunque algunos mantienen la expectativa de que eso garantiza al menos una continuidad en ciertos temas de la agenda desplegada en el hemisferio. Los temas de la agenda estadounidense que han estado presentes con América Latina no parece que cambiarán: desde el tema de las drogas, Cuba y el comercio hasta la migración, pero sin tener visos de que tomarán un camino distinto al que se ha tenido hasta ahora. Latinoamérica no es definitivamente una prioridad y el presidente Barack Obama se acuesta y despierta pensando en muchos otros problemas más acuciantes y complejos que América Latina, dijo a The Associated Press Andrés Molano, profesor de la Facultad de Relaciones Internacionales de la Universidad del Rosario en Colombia. De hecho, América Latina estuvo prácticamente ajena de la campaña electoral entre Obama y su contrincante republica Mitt Romney, quienes al tratar asuntos de política exterior se centraron en temas como Irán, Afganistán y Pakistán. No pienso que Obama se enfocó mucho en América Latina, dijo a la AP Michael Shifter, presidente del centro de estudios Diálogo Interamericano, sobre el primer su primer periodo de gobierno. Afirmó que actualmente la relación de Estados Unidos con Latinoamérica podría resumirse con tres palabras: cordial, pero distante. El tuvo un estilo y un discurso que era más agradable que el de (su antecesor, George W.) Bush, pero creo que hubo poco progreso en la agenda Latinoamericana, añadió el experto, para quien ahora Obama podría intentar impulsar algunas cosas que había prometido o comenzado a ser, lo cual no necesariamente podrá ser visto en la región como algo que marque un viraje de lo visto hasta ahora. Para algunos, sin embargo, el nuevo gobierno de Obama tendrá frente a sí la posibilidad de realizar ciertos ajustes luego de algunos mensajes enviados en la elección estadounidense: el apoyo de los migrantes a su candidatura y la legalización de la marihuana para uso recreativo en dos estados de ese país. Obama ganó con el voto de los migrantes latinos, ahora cómo pagará? Obama tiene que reconocer y pagar esa deuda con los latinos, dijo el miércoles el presidente de Bolivia, Evo Morales, uno de los mandatarios críticos a la administración estadounidense en la región. Por lo menos yo diría que levante el bloque (económico) a Cuba, es lo mejor que puede hacer para reconocer el voto latino, añadió. El presidente estadounidense había dicho que de resultar electo el tema migratorio sería una prioridad y en los últimos meses de su mandato implementó un programa que suspende temporalmente las deportaciones de jóvenes inmigrantes que fueron traídos al país cuando eran niños de forma ilegal. Estos jóvenes también pueden solicitar un permiso temporal de trabajo si cumplen con ciertos requisitos. América Latina, sin embargo, ha llamado desde hace años a que ese país realice una amplia reforma migratoria que considere la legalización de los migrantes, algo que aún se ve complicado en un país que ha mostrado una división en el tema. En su relación con Cuba, Obama flexibilizó las restricciones sobre los viajes a la isla y ahora los cubano estadounidenses pueden ir todas las veces que quieran, permitió el envío de remesas para que los ciudadanos de su país envíen hasta dólares anuales a cubanos que no ostenten altos cargos en el gobierno, todos esos movimientos que han sido saludados, pero que aún dejan intacto el tema del embargo sobre la isla. En Cuba, el portal digital oficialista CubaSi tituló así los resultados: Elecciones en Estados Unidos: no ganó lo peor, y añadió que con cierto alivio y sin gran optimismo fue recibida la noticia del triunfo de Barack Obama en las elecciones generales. Otros se mostraron más optimistas en la isla. Para los cubanos es una gran cosa, había algunos temores de que si triunfara el Partido Republicano pudieran echarse atrás las medidas positivas que tomó la administración Obama como es flexibilizar las visitas a Cuba, el envío de remesas, las visitas de los artistas cubanos a La Prensa Latinoamérica no espera grandes cambios con Obama Estados Unidos, dijo a la AP Oscar Chepe Espinoza, un economista de 71 años que cumplió una larga condena después de convertirse en disidente. Para Shifter, tanto el tema del programa de suspensión temporal de deportaciones a jóvenes inmigrantes en Estados Unidos como el ablandamiento de algunas restricciones hacia Cuba son dos pasos relativamente modestos que no marcan ningún cambio vital en su relación con Latinoamérica y tampoco piensa que en la región sean recordados como una contribución duradera. En el tema de seguridad y drogas, Estados Unidos ha tenido en los últimos años una cooperación estrecha con países como México, Colombia, además de Centroamérica, aunque recientemente han comenzado a surgir posiciones en la región a favor de analizar la posibilidad de legalizar las drogas y que muestran una frustración ante los pocos avances para controlar el consumo de drogas en territorio estadounidense, que para muchos es uno de los motores que alimenta la violencia creciente de los carteles del narcotráfico en diversas zonas. El presidente Felipe Calderón se dijo el miércoles convencido de tras el triunfo de Obama, México y Estados Unidos seguirán ampliando y profundizando la cooperación y el trabajo coordinado en beneficio de la prosperidad, seguridad y competitividad, según un comunicado de la oficina del mandatario mexicano en cuyo mandato se aprobó la llamada Iniciativa Mérida por el que el gobierno estadounidense provee recursos para equipamiento y entrenamiento. En Colombia, otro de los países vistos como aliados de Estados Unidos, el presidente Juan Manuel Santos calificó el triunfo de Obama como una buena noticia y consideró que eso nos permite continuar consolidando una relación que de por si ya tiene unos cimientos muy provechosos y unos cimientos que han dado unos resultados para los dos pueblos al pueblo americano y al pueblo colombiano. En la región, Estados Unidos se mantiene como el principal socio comercial de muchos países, con excepciones que incluyen a Brasil y Chile, donde China ha tomado ese lugar. Algunos confían que un segundo mandato de Obama permita tener un nuevo entendimiento con Brasil, un país que ha criticado a Estados Unidos por su política comercial que considera proteccionista. Existe la expectativa de que las relaciones con Estados Unidos saltarán a un nuevo nivel que intensifique las relaciones. La esperanza es que en un segundo mandato, (Obama) estará menos limitado por la perspectiva de su relección (y) podría surgir un nuevo entendimiento en el plano comercial, comentó a la AP Marcelo Rech, analista de asuntos internacionales en Brasil. Y esa cordialidad podría verse reflejada en evitar confrontaciones con algunos países que han sido críticos hacia Estados Unidos, como Venezuela, donde el presidente Hugo Chávez dijo antes de la elección que no tenía muchas esperanzas de que ganando uno u otro vaya a haber cambios importantes en cuanto a la relación de Estados Unidos con el mundo, con América Latina y con Venezuela. Para Julio Oleas, catedrático y analista de la Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales, tras el triunfo de Obama los latinoamericanos podríamos usar una expresión estadounidense para expresar lo que sentimos: so what? ( y qué?), porque hay muy poco o nada que esperar en temas como narcotráfico, comercio o cualquier otro tipo de relación. November/noviembre 16, 2012 Obama s big Latino win worries Republicans (Continued from Page 11) country, the Latino community. On Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, vowed to introduce an immigration reform package next year, saying Republicans would reject it at their peril. Opponents of an immigration deal warned that Republicans should not take the Democrats bait. Steve Camarota of the Center for Immigration Studies noted that Latinos have reliably backed Democrats for decades, even after President Ronald Reagan signed an immigration amnesty in 1986 that gave many of them legal status. Those new US-American citizens, Camarota said, turned into Democrats. Camarota and other supporters of immigration restrictions contend that Latinos lean Democratic because they favor government social programs and higher taxes on the wealthy. They changed the national electorate, and now they have to move with the electorate, Camarota said of the Republicans. For 30 (Continuación de p.3) republicano en la cámara baja John Boehner invitó al presidente a retomar las negociaciones _fallidas en 2011_ que evitarían la entrada en vigencia a fin de año mayores impuestos y recortes drásticos al gasto público. Los republicanos conservaron la mayoría en la cámara y los demócratas en el Senado. Señor presidente, éste es su momento. Queremos que usted sea el líder. Hallemos el consenso que nos ha eludido, dijo Boehner refiriéndose a las years that we have data, Hispanics have been voting Democratic. There s no reason to think that s going to change unless the Republican Party moves away from its low-tax, low-regulation position. NumbersUSA President Roy Beck, whose group advocates reductions in immigration levels, argues that Republicans like Romney need to explain to Latino voters why immigration restrictions are in their interest. He should have talked about Hispanic unemployment and how much high immigration hurts Hispanic employment. The debate is nothing new for the Republicans. Mario H. López, president of the conservative Hispanic Leadership Fund, said he s heard arguments like that before after every election in which Latinos lean more Democratic and Republicans suffer. The clock has been ticking, López said. Some of us have been talking about it for years. It s up to them if they want to listen or have more nights like Tuesday night. Activistas piden reforma migratoria ya negociaciones fiscales. El déficit fiscal es la prioridad inmediata para Obama y los dos partidos en el Congreso, subrayada por la drástica caída que sufrió Wall Street por temores de que los dos partidos sean incapaces de llegar a un acuerdo antes del 1 de enero. Si las negociaciones bipartidistas en el frente fiscal son exitosas, pudieran servir a crear un ambiente favorable para comenzar a negociar una reforma migratoria.

19 LORAIN/CLEVELAND SALES: November/noviembre 16, 2012 Real Republicans, Do Not Despair Op Ed by David Arredondo, November 10, 2012 In the wake of the loss of the presidential election last Tuesday, the GOP may be down, but not out by any stretch of the imagination. Many Republicans knew the results would be close and were hopeful of winning narrowly so it was a shock when all the battleground states went to President Obama. Our dismal economy the last four years, high unemployment rates of 8%+, rising health care costs, higher taxes, trillions added to the national debt, just to name a few concerns, should have been reason to consider a new chief executive. Add to this the fact that the President offered no solutions to any of these problems, no tax reform, no entitlement reform, and no job development. The Democratic platform merely called for higher taxes on those making more than $250,000 in order to solve the deficit and the debt, and more stimuli spending as a means of creating jobs. If you are happy with the last four years, you will sure to love the next four. Pre-election polls showed Barrack Obama with 2-5 point leads in most of the swing states which he in fact won. Things did improve for Republican candidate Romney compared to Candidate McCain in Indiana and North Carolina went Republican this year and the president s popular vote percentage of looks more like 50-48% with 8 million fewer votes than in Take a look at the U.S. map of counties that went for Obama versus Romney and you will mostly see a red map with splotches of blue. The outcome of the election shows that nothing changed. Save for Democrats re-electing the President, picking up two seats in the Senate and the House which Republicans retained, the status quo will prevail at least for the next two years. Flashback to 2004 when Democrats lost the presidency once again, as well as Congress going back to Predictions of the demise of the Democratic Party were shortlived as they rebounded to win Congress two years later and the presidency in A Republican Party devastated in 2006 and 2008 rebounded in 2010 to win 63 seats in Congress, four in the Senate, numerous governorships and statehouses coast to coast. By picking up the governorship of North Carolina last Tuesday, there are now 31 Republican governors, governors who are leading the way in their states with conservative policies of balanced budgets, smaller government, lower taxes and spending, and job growth. They recognize the fact that our current system of government whether at the local, state, or federal level is UNSUSTAINABLE. We cannot continue to spend public monies and raise taxes on the middle class to pay for it. Republicans cannot be a version of Democratic-Lite which Democrats and their brethren in the Mainstream Media, and even so-called Republicans, are advocating. Republicans need a stronger, more articulate message that appeals to all Americans, not just to special interest groups the way that Democrats pander to theirs. Currently America s most critical issues are related to the economy and individual liberty; the bigger the government, the smaller the citizen. Our profound principles must be: 1. Adherence to the Constitution; 2. Respect for individual rights and liberties; 3. Smaller and more efficient government. As for Hispanic voters, we have to reach out to them as we do to all other groups with an All-American message. Republicans have a better and more visible group of elected Latinos to lead this outreach David Arredondo beginning with Senator Marco Rubio, Governors Susana Martínez, Luis Fortuño, and Brian Sandoval. Add to this group Senator-elect Ted Cruz of Texas and you see that it is possible for a conservative Latino to find a leadership role in his/her state as well as the Republican Party. I challenge the Democratic Party to match this distinguished lineup. Over the past 4 years President Obama and the Democrats in Congress failed to initiate and pass Comprehensive Immigration Reform as promised in Over this same period of time record numbers of deportations took place. That 70% of Latino voters supported this president and his party is mind-boggling. Republicans now need to take the lead and introduce our version of immigration reform, reform that is first of all based on national security, assimilation, and The Best and the Brightest. Already I look forward to 2014 when we have the chance to re-elect Ohio Governor John Kasich, all current state office holders, and an expanded House and Senate. Nationally, I expect to see gains in Congress and the Senate. With a principled message that appeals to the majority of Americans, we can proceed forward for the good of our nation and our posterity.

All of the selections in the Civic Band program are great works that were originally composed for orchestra, and then transcribed for band. The Civic Orchestra concert will feature two wellknown and treasured masterworks, Brandenburg Concerto #1 in F BWV 1046, by Johann Sebastian Bach, and Symphony #40 in G minor, K. 550, G. 123, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The Bach work was the first of the famous six Brandenburg concertos that he presented to Christian Ludwig in Regal and intricate, this concerto has all of the elements that place Bach s music on the very top shelf. The often heard Mozart symphony, his second to last, was composed in 1788 originally intended for the opening of a casino. Profound and beautiful, this piece shows Mozart s seldom-revealed dark side.
